If you know me, you know I love to read YA books. I love finding a new story to share with my daughter and her friends. I love promoting a new title to our school librarians. I also love being reminded of being young!
The Cod for Love and Heartbreak was a sweet story, centering on a young math whiz and coding expert whose work with numbers goes better than her work with humans. It was definitely a read I could suggest to my middle schoolers and to my daughter in high school.
Here’s the overview:
In this contemporary romcom retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma by USA TODAY bestselling author Jillian Cantor, there’s nothing more complex—or unpredictable—than love.
When math genius Emma and her coding club co-president, George, are tasked with brainstorming a new project, The Code for Love is born.
George disapproves of Emma’s idea of creating a matchmaking app, accusing her of meddling in people’s lives. But all the happy new couples at school are proof that the app works. At least at first.
Emma’s code is flawless. So why is it that perfectly matched couples start breaking up, the wrong people keep falling for each other, and Emma’s own feelings defy any algorithm?

I didn’t make the connection to Emma while reading it, but of course now I see the parallels. It’s a fun rom-com with a happy ending and with characters that are true-to-life. Thank you for my kindle mobi copy and for making me part of the tour.
